Verizon will establish, before the end of the year, a standards-based, multi-vendor 100 gigabit (100G) Ethernet link for the IP backbone on a portion of the company’s European long-haul network. ??This next-generation technology means Verizon will take the next step in advancing 100G technology by enabling 100G Ethernet connections between routers on its IP network.

Verizon will deploy the 100G router-to-router technology on its European backbone network from Paris to Frankfurt. Last year, Verizon deployed a 100G ultra-long-haul optical transmission system on this 893-kilometer (555-mile) network route.

Deploying the 100G Ethernet technology – which will use Juniper Networks routers and Ciena’s commercially-available 100G Ethernet coherent optical transport solution – enables IP backbone routers to more efficiently be transported on the underlying 100G wavelengths.

By installing new equipment for the Ethernet upgrade, but retaining use of the current fiber system, Verizon will be able to increase bandwidth without having to change the existing fiber infrastructure.
